About TUFF Phones

TUFF Phones

We are a UK based company specialising in tough, rugged mobile phones and tough smartphones. TUFF Phones was established in 2010 and originally began life as a retailer of several different brands of tough mobile phones.

In 2014, the company changed direction and began working on ideas around the development of our own range of rugged smartphones. Twelve months later, talks began with a number of tier one manufacturers in mainland China, and we were soon discussing the pros and cons of different composite materials, shatterproof screens and operating systems. By early 2016, we had settled on our choice of factory, and work began on the range, which was successfully launched later that year, with the BBC covering our story, as the devices began to hit the UK market.

Since then, our phone sales have been growing steadily. In Spring 2017, our second generation of devices was launched with the release of the T400s and the T1. Further devices are set to launch before the summer with the new T300s, T500 and T10 being released in the coming weeks.

The T1 and T10 will be game changers. They look and feel like the beautifully engineered smartphone you would expect to see with a Samsung or Apple logo on them, yet they are built to withstand the rigours of life on a farm or a construction site. These are phones that can be dropped from a height without fear of the screen shattering, or immersed in water without being damaged, but they still look perfectly at home in a business meeting or a social gathering, without looking like you are carrying your work phone. Thanks in part to their titanium-aluminium alloy frames, these devices don’t need bulky plastic outers to make them rugged, and so they can take on a sleek appearance more akin to a regular smartphone. 

The T1 and T400s are not only durable and look great – they perform superbly too. We now use powerful Sony CMOS camera sensors, Sharp IGZO high resolution screens and powerful top quality processors. All our devices are dual sim, with long lasting battery power, sizeable memory capability and recent Android operating software.

Our entire range of phones are great for builders, plumbers, scaffolders, painters, decorators, electricians, surveyors, farmers, engineers, heavy machine operators, military personnel, or indeed anyone whose work needs them to communicate wirelessly with an easy to operate phone, but which will also survive the usual daily knocks, falls, scratches and bashes of these professions.

We still maintain a friendly, customer service approach where it doesn’t matter if you are ordering a single phone for your own use, or you are the purchasing manager of an oil company wanting to buy 100 devices, we will spend time helping you to choose the right phone for your particular needs.  

SIM-free, contract phones or upgrades.

We can supply tough phones either:

  • under a new phone contract
  • SIM-free, ready to work on all the main networks
  • as an upgrade to your existing contract

So please, have a look through the site and compare the various models on offer to see which mobile phone is best suited to your needs. When you've chosen your model and you're ready to order, our on-line store makes purchasing fuss-free. Alternatively, please telephone us if you are not sure which of our phones best suits your requirements.
